OSHA, Industry Representatives Partner to
Address Trenching Deaths in North Dakota
May 4, 2018 -- Throughout the United States, two workers are killed every month in trench collapses. One of OSHA’s Priority Goals for 2018 is to reduce trenching and excavation hazards. To address this safety concern in North Dakota, a coalition of trench training partners have formed a Safety Alliance with the Region VIII Bismarck OSHA office. The Safety Alliance will provide employers and workers with information, guidance, and training resources that will assist them with reducing exposure to trenching and excavation-related hazards.
Safety Alliance members include OSHA, WSI, North Dakota Safety Council, ABC of North Dakota, AGC of North Dakota, Bakken Basin Consortium, Energy Coalition for Contractor Safety, North Dakota One Call, and the MONDAKS Safety Network.
As members of the alliance, all agree to collaborate on the development and communication of training and education programs for the construction and energy services industries, and to initiate awareness efforts with their members throughout the two year agreement.
OSHA will support the members’ efforts by providing training to members’ inspectors and auditors on identifying trench hazards; providing outreach activities and presentations relating to trenching and excavating; and assisting with the development of training materials, hazard warnings, and safety alerts.

Safety is about People 

Marlowe Ann Regan was happy as a baby, child, and young adult. According to her dad, Tom, she was ebullient – she could walk into a room and liven up the place. She had a great, contagious laugh and a real good giggle … Tom can still hear her giggle in his head.

Tom and Patti Regan lost Marlowe, their oldest daughter, in a single-car crash in May 2006. Marlowe was 21 and worked at Sykes while living in Minot with her boyfriend, Michael. The day she died was her brother Walt’s 19th birthday. Marlowe was traveling from Minot to Bismarck to celebrate his birthday with the whole Regan family.

“We were washing Patti’s van in the driveway and we wondered why Marlowe wasn’t there yet,” Tom remembered. “It was getting kind of late and all of a sudden we saw a sheriff’s car pull up.” When Chaplain Dan Sweeney got out, Tom thought Dan was just stopping to say hello since they were friends. But then he saw a deputy sheriff was with him. “They walked up to us, and I had an inkling something was wrong. Maybe it was the look on his face. I thought…‘oh shit.’”
